T Rob,

Are you communication challenged or what?  Go back, re-read this thread and 
figure out where you broke the list rules.  It's pretty simple.  You were 
called out and there's no reason to make a stink about it.

Look here for the rules you seem to have missed:

(hint: it's at the top of the list)

I am the small roaster in Panama.
Maria's not so sweet it seems. At least her 'fans' are not.
Ohh... a big bad Canadian company. God forbid someone should mention a 
foreign country - I thought SM dealt with all countries? I guess just not 
Canadians. Sorry.

Alchemy - the 'science' of turning lead into gold. I thought that was a 
myth? Or are you now turning chocolate into gold?
At any rate, I just tried to help a fellow roaster - didn't realise I had to 
drink the kool-aide, and that I could only speak if I preached the Sweet 
Marie gospel.
Merry Christmas Mr Nanci
